Class of 2007
The 2007 Yale World Fellows include a top television news broadcaster in China, a policy adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Chief Operating Officer of the BBC’s New Media unit, members of parliament from Singapore and Ukraine and one of Southeast Asia’s most critically acclaimed playwrights.
“I am very pleased to introduce this extraordinary group of men and women to the Yale community,” said University President Richard Levin. “The World Fellows Program attracts outstanding talent, and Yale will benefit greatly from the Fellows’ presence on campus.”
“The 2007 Yale World Fellows not only have remarkable records of leadership,” said Yale World Fellows Program Director Daniel C. Esty, the Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy at Yale, “but they promise to achieve even more in the future. It is exciting that they will be joining a growing network of global leaders trained at Yale.”
